Time management and relaxation are two things that teachers and students consider most important while preparing for board examinations. A well chalked out time table that helps you pay equal attention to all subjects and gives you time to unwind is ideal for students whose boards are nearing.
“It is important to utilise the early morning hours as that is the time when your mind is fresh. Things learnt during this time is much easier to remember. Writing whatever you are revising is a very good idea as it builds up speed and gives practice,” said Usha Ram, principal, Laxman Public School.
Students also consider the time table to be one of the most important factors that help to revise better. “My mother, who is a teacher, helped me prepare a good time table and it helped me complete revision on time,” said Raghav Singh, a student of Hindu College, who passed his boards last year.
But a time table is not only about studies. “There should be enough time for sleep and relaxation. No student can and should study for more than 2-3 hours at a stretch,” said RK Sharma, principal, Ahlcon Public School.
One thing experts are strongly against is studying all night long. “The body’s anatomy is not fit for staying up all night and students should avoid putting this extra stress on their bodies,” Sharma added.
Subjects that appear later in the date sheet should be revised in the beginning and subjects whose exams are in the beginning should be revised later.
